Mo Mozart, with her GP husband Jack and two young
children, moves from Crystal Palace to rural Norfolk in
pursuit of the perfectly balanced lifestyle. Their idyllic
farmhouse, though, holds dark family secrets that date back
decades - to when Dottie Hammond moved from London to
become a World War Two Land Girl on a farm surrounded by
Norfolk's RAF/USA Airbases.
Mo's happy country life starts to unravel when Jack is accused
of abusing a young patient and her daughter, Lily, develops an
imaginary friend from the 1940s. With help from both town and
country friends, experiences of past and present and Dottie's
wartime diary, Mo exposes the unresolved events that have
haunted the village of Great Haddeston for seventy years. In
the process she sorts out complex family issues that revolve
around Jack's adoption and his glamorous birth mother.
Kindred Spirits is the second Mo Mozart book; the first is
Blood and Water.
"Hugely impressed by Lucy McCarraher's prose, and
by the diligence and erudition of both the plotting
and research. There's a strong sense throughout of
a writer who has truly engaged with her characters
and with the period. It was a pleasure to re-enter Mo's
world - she's a very sympathetic character."
